I have come to understand that no matter how successful I become, there will always be a 27-year-old who is doing it better. Accepting this is an important step in overcoming the pain of jealousy.
Jealousy stirs up competition. But everyone needs some competitive edge otherwise we wouldn’t challenge ourselves to progress. Other people are our barometer. But if you’re not first, you’re not necessarily last either. You can still influencer; plus, you probably offer a different perspective.
The fact remains though: There’s always going to be someone better than you.
If you're an WRITER or aspiring blogger, I highly recommend doing these 3 things:
1. Read Do the Work by Steven Pressfield
2. Create your own blog and publish something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
3. Buy an All-Access Pass from Masterclass to learn from the best writers in the world.
